U.S. Mail...

Mailboxes, none of this mail through your door stuff ! I saw these in lots of remote places, lots of them seemed worthy of a photo.

Country land mailbox clusters...a common sight in up-country Australia, Frank.

I like the drama you have injected into the shot, despite your creaking knees, and love the flowery bits in the foreground.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray, I would imagine so, same kind of places. Creaky knees? smile

Quite right too, an odd sight for British eyes
Frank L Croston.: I saw them everywhere, I don't know why I found them so photographic, you could do a whole series of them.
Excellent and dramatic shot. Love the look of the mullein plants. They look better in B/W than in colour. In cities mail delivery is still door to door but in the country, it is mail boxes. The plows try to down them all winter which is a real bummer.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mary. It does look better in b/w.
They immediately conjure up a vision of America.
Frank L Croston.: I think that was what attracted me, Bill, they are iconic...

Definitely worth a pic, especially with skies like that for background.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, I thought so...
I've always wondered what they do with items too big to fit in the boxes, and if each box has a key only available to the mailman and the owner.
Frank L Croston.: No keys on these, Brian, I don't know what they do for larger items.
Totally awesome shot of an American icon, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ginnie...Totally awesome! You American you....smile

We moan about your mails service but at least we get it delivered to the door. Mind you, the door to some of the places is probably miles off even the beaten track.
Frank L Croston.: That is true Alan,but as you say not practical in some of these places.
Much better to have it put through your letter box!
Frank L Croston.: Very true, Tom.
Very dramatic with the clouds and open mail box. Good subjects.
This is terrific - I love the angle, and that you kept the flowers in the foreground!
